Yuva Gati auditions are similar to a dance workshop. Students don’t have to present any dance item, they simply need to come with an open mind and to follow their workshop leaders instructions. The panel will look for enthusiasm, stamina, passion and creativity; they will not judge students based on how much or how little they know about the dance form.
